If You Have 8 Minutes …

… to spare, do do do take a look at this photo-documentary by Darcy Padilla, called The Julie Project.

Darcy Padilla has photographed Julie over a period of 18 years, from when she was a teenager living in the Ambassador Hotel in San Francisco till her death from AIDS at age 36.

Sociopolitical issues aside, this documentary FORCES you to think and feel for a PERSON named Julie. Of course, there are many other cases like Julie all around the world, and it is oft too easy to forget about them and let them slip through the cracks of the social system.

This is one of those things that will stay with me for a very, very, long time.
